About this title


Practicing wholeness is an everyday activity which Murray Stein relates to many areas of life: to the private world of inner experience, to religious beliefs, images and rituals, to organisational dynamics and involvements, and to cultural paradigms. His general theory of wholeness integrates Jung's theory of instincts and archetypes. He then turns his eye on daily life and the clinical aspects of treatment that confront the practicing therapist and patient. These include reconstructing personal history, the therapeutic relationship, and psychopathological problems that stand in the way of wholeness.


Murray Stein argues that "practicing wholeness" is relevant to many areas of our lives: our private inner worlds; our religious beliefs, images and rituals; our organizational involvements; and our cultural paradigms. Practicing wholeness is a daily activity with implications at cognitive, emotional, physical, and spiritual levels. Stein sets out a general concept of wholeness and then details what it is made up of by using Jung's theory of instincts and archetypes. Stein focuses on daily life and on the clinical practice of psychotherapy, exploring the relation of psychotherapeutic treatment to human nature. Finally, he examines several aspects of treatment as these confront the practicing therapist and the patient: the reconstruction of personal history and its meaning; the nature of the relationship between therapist and patient, and the role this plays in the healing process; and some psychopathological problems that stand in the way of practicing wholeness. Practicing Wholeness: Analytical Psychology And Jungian Thought is insightful, innovative, and valued contribution to Jungian studies and the psychotherapists reference shelf. -- Midwest Book Review
